Get The Look - NYFW Street Style Beauty

This post is sponsored by Cash Passport Prepaid MasterCard

When I went to New York Fashion Week just a few months ago it was the wind down of North America’s summertime and the fashionable attendees were showing off their hottest summer looks. Now that summer has started for us in Australia, we have the opportunity to rock some of those looks.

To help you master the beauty trends of summer, without jumping on a plane, I’ve collated what you need to recreate some of my favourite looks with the best international sourced beauty products.  Continue Reading

Fashion Week NYC Street Style Nails

This month I flew to New York Fashion Week to bring you a special series of Street Style Beauty. It’s not all about the fashion at Fashion Week – beauty is just a relevant. Whether it’s on the catwalk or on the streets, trends are being set and worn.

I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first 2 posts of the series I showed you hair street style and makeup street style. In this final post I’m showing you the nails I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York. Continue Reading

Fashion Week NYC Street Style makeup

Everybody generally cares about the fashion at Fashion Week but beauty is just as relevant. It’s where trends are made and modelled – whether it be fashion or beauty. But where things differ is that the fashion world is obsessed with street style, while the beauty world seems to focus on the catwalk. I believe the tables should be turned because it’s the real people, out on the streets, who are bringing beauty looks to life. This is why I flew to New York Fashion Week to bring you this special series of Street Style Beauty.

I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I showed you hair street style, and now I’m going to show you the makeup I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York. Continue Reading

New York Fashion Week 2014

We’ve seen the incredible outfits worn to New York Fashion Week thanks to the many talented street style photographers that now rule the fashion world. It’s a topic that interests me but I always find myself asking, “why don’t you snap her nails?” or “where are the cool hairstyles?”. I questioned whether anyone who attends fashion ever did anything with their beauty look so I took it upon myself to go to New York Fashion Week and get the answers myself. This is the result ….. street style beauty.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to ever take a focus on street style beauty but it’s definitely lacking in the blog arena. Yes, the majority of the fashion crowd don’t brush their hair and they don’t really wear makeup but not all of them are like that. I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I’m going to show you the cool hair colours and styles I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York. Continue Reading

NYFW Beauty Products

You saw what I took in my beauty bag to New York Fashion Week but what about my makeup bag? Picking which makeup I take away with me is definitely the hardest task I have to face when travelling. It would be like choosing which one of your kids gets to travel with you, except the criteria I look at for my choices comes down to versatility, reliability and proven success at making me look good. Rarely will I take a makeup product that I’ve never used before because I don’t have the room to take more than one of each item …. except for lipstick of course. And eyeshadows. And lashes.

As I did with my beauty bag, I try to take miniature and deluxe sized samples where possible and palettes for items where I need a choice of a few colours, excluding lipsticks because I usually need to carry the lipstick around with me all day for touch-ups.

Without further ado, here’s the makeup that landed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
